There was a time when this part of London echoed with hoofbeats. But for all its lofty Victorian dash, Clanricarde Gardens VI is as current as it is classical. The corniced ceilings and varnished woods are particularly English stable, while the canvases of African art seem all the bolder for hanging on walls of radiant cream. So mount to the balcony and settle at the table for two, or venture further. Holland Park is nearby, and you’re only a stroll from the vast, green expanse of Hyde Park.
When they’re not in London, your hosts head to the Bahamas or Australia. He’s a lawyer, while she works in travel marketing – and loves to ride. Hers are the photos of horses you’ll spy.
Pass under the Victorian portico and into the fine-featured sitting room. There’s a period delicacy to the French doors and high gracious ceilings, while the twin sofas are even more comfortable for their clusters of white and red cushions.
Eyes will widen a trifle at the ornately carved, dark-wood dining table, and the gilt-framed mirror above the ornamental fireplace. And before you rest your head in the mellow master, take a look at the elegant bathroom, then take a seat beside the well-cushioned window.
